More than 90 percent of the sodium in our diets comes from sources such as processed foods and table salt. The recommended daily allowance for sodium consumption is 2,400 mg. Drinking soft water in an amount of two quarts would only add approximately 240 mg of sodium to your diet but that does not mean that it is not harmful.
